I finally was able to make it back to the track. 1/8th mile is what is close so i go to setup the suspension. Car is a 318ci with 11:1, AFR 185's, Custom Nitrous cam, Victor 5.0 with a stock computer. Front Coil overs, Rear coil-overs, NO Anti-roll bar, 27x10.5 ET streets, 4.10s, G-force T5. The car leaves straight for some odd reason. But heres the times. Previous best was a 8.3 @ 89.2

1st pass- 13.5 psi 4500 launch
R/T: .099
60': 1.68
1/8: 8.19
MPH: 87.6

2nd pass- 12.5 psi 5000 launch added 3.5 turns to front coil-overs, 2 turns in the rear
R/T: .120
60': 1.63
1/8: 8.09
MPH:88.1

3rd pass- 12 psi 5000 added 1 trun to the front spring collar
R/T: .103
60': 1.60
1/8: 8.00
MPH: 88.1

Final pass- 12 psi 6000 added 1 trun to the front, removed 1 turn from the rear
R/T: .029
60': 1.64
1/8: 7.97
MPH: 88.6

I know there's more left in the car. I just need more seat time with it. It also need to be tuned. I have a PMS, but i need to get to a dyno to find what she likes the best. I did play with intial timing which helped some runs but slowed it down on the bottom side. All runs were made N/A. I know having a nitrous cam doesnt help. LMK where i should look for better times. I'm looking for maybe 2-3 tenths at the most.

your car should be running faster than that. the reason i say that is because i have a91 coupe with a 306 H/C/I, and I have run a beast of 7.87 at 89 mph and my 60ft was 1.66 and thats on motor and my car should be faster than that, so i know u have more in your car than me. it takes time and patience. you will have to keep going to the track and testing your car until u get the hang of it, trust me your car has a lot potential. good luck

My normal 1/8th mile time is [email protected] mph all NA. I have no coil overs etc and its a automatic. I did some valve work 5 angle and took my car back to the track and it felt i lost 100 hp. Im not pleased at all. But I will fix it though even if i have to purchase some new heads.
